As the weather warms up, motorcycle riding season is kicking into full gear. In honor of Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI) would like to offer some tips and things to consider to keep riders safe on the road.
In 2018 and 2019, pediatric vehicular heatstroke was the leading cause of nontraffic child fatalities in the United States, according to the safety organization Kids and Cars. VTTI has released new research about technologies that are designed to prevent child hot-car deaths.
Gerardo Flintsch, director of the Center for Sustainable & Resilient Transportation Infrastructure at VTTI, has been named the Dan Pletta Professor by the Virginia Tech Board of Visitors.
